Celebrating my three year blogiversary πŸŽ‰

Three years ago today, I published my first post on this blog. I didn’t want the day to pass without acknowledging it, so here we are. Wow. Three years, huh?

When I started this blogging venture three years ago, I really didn’t know what to expect. All I wanted to do was create a space where I could ramble about the books I loved (and spare my poor friends and family who were tired of hearing about them), whether or not anyone actually saw what I had to say. I didn’t expect to find an entire community of like-minded book lovers from all over the world with whom I’d have some of the funniest, most thought-provoking, and most meaningful conversations. I’ve certainly had my ups and downs with blogging, but the one thing that has never varied has been the support, community, and endless bookish excitement from all of you.

I am more grateful than I can say to everyone who has stumbled upon my blog within the last few years and taken the time to read and comment and let me know that I’m doing more than just shouting into the void. An enormous thank you to Sophie, Xandra, Mary, Caro, Lauren, Fatma,Β Sophie, Lais, Kay, Marie, Abi,Β Caitlin….and so many, many more that it would be impossible to list them all. I feel so lucky to have met all of you! ❀

Well, that’s basically all I wanted to say! It’s been a fun three years, and I look forward to what’s to come.

While you’re here, I might as well mention that I finally started a bookstagram! Better late than never, right? I’m still kind of figuring out what I want to do with it, but if you’re on bookstagram too, let me know so I can follow you!

At any rate, thanks for reading, and thanks for being the best blogging community a girl could ask for. πŸ˜‰

  2. ahh…. happy 3 year blogiversary Margaret !! That’s amazing and I’m so glad you have enjoyed blogging for the most part (ups and downs are certainly a thing and I hope you make sure to always put yourself first) and I agree that the community is the best part, it is so weird to think that like 3 years ago, we would have had no one to talk about books with but now we do. I really love all your posts and I’m soOOoo glad to have you in the community. I wish you all the best for the future. Thank you for mentioning me, I feel so lucky for having met you too. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  7. i’m so sorry i am so late to this post, mary! ahhh, blogiversaries are always exciting imo. i become so nostalgic, looking back on my journey and my old posts.

    i am so glad to have been part of your journey as well! connecting with people & making friends is my favorite aspect of blogging and probably why i wouldn’t trade it for anything else.

    i am wishing you all the luck on your bookstagram! i attempted to keep an account for a while there (late last year), but i’ve figured out social media is not for me. i enjoy it from an observer stand point, but i don’t like creating content there, at least not as much as i enjoy writing posts and stuff. but it CAN be so fun and that’s why i hope you find your way on the social media landscape, hahah.

    once again, happy blogiversary, margaret! and thanks for always being sooo nice❀️❀️❀️

    1. It’s very nostalgic looking back at these last three years! Hard to believe it’s been so long. And yep, absolutely, I feel so lucky to have met so many amazing people through blogging 😊

      I don’t think instagram will ever be my favorite thing, but I have been enjoying it so far, which is good enough for me for now. Thanks so much, Lais!! πŸ’•
